Thanks for the help :)

I tried things on a newer Ubuntu thinking that it will have a newer version of OpenSSL (which it does).

Ubuntu 12.04
  openssl version
  OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012

Debian "testing"
  openssl version
  OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012

As you can see althou the versions are not exactly the same, the major version numbers are... so I would expect the Ubuntu version to fail in the same way the Debian one does ... supprisingly it does NOT (as in, the Ubuntu version works without a problem)

Having a quick look at the OpenSSL change log (http://www.openssl.org/news/changelog.html) I can see the differences in the versions hint at TLS behaviour alterations ... so the problem is down to the version of OpenSSL (just as you said)

Do you think its worth sending an email (or posting) to OpenSSL to inform them of the issue? (I guess it could be bug)

Thanks again,
